Objective: To ascertain the extent to which pressure within a defined neck compartment could be used as predictor for wound healing. Method: Thirty patients with various head and neck malignancies that were treated surgically, were considered prospectively. In the course of surgery a pressure microsensor was implanted into the defined neck compartment and data were collected over the first 48 hours postoperatively. Logistic regression analysis was used to determine the strength of interfascial pressure (IP) as predictor for wound healing.
